Client Rating for Malawi 5/5 from 10 reviews

Accommodation was excellent; also the catering but I felt threatened by another wasted day. A bird walk was offered, at extra charge, and returned past some of the local houses and fishermen working on their nets, which was interesting. I was told that the weather was not calm enough for boat trips and soon discovered that the beach in front of and to either side of the hotel was too rocky to go swimming. There was a good swimming pool, but the ants around the edge were a bit off-putting. Some Dutch volunteers showed me round the tree project which they were helping with and also told me that there was a local riding stables. I had a nice quiet ride through the forest, which was very enjoyable, and riding on the beach was also an option. The horses seemed well looked after but the owners were all away and it was not in the same league as the excellent stables and customer care at Zomba.
